Money Heist, or La Casa De Papel, returned to Netflix for the second half of season five and the final instalment did not disappoint. As the gang continued to fight back against the army, having faced the loss of Tokyo (played by Úrsula Corberó), there was no knowing who would survive. The final episodes were full of surprising twists and Express.co.uk has all you need to know about how the series ended and whether there will be another season.
Will there be a season six of Money Heist?
Money Heist season five was split into two parts, with the final half of the series airing on December 3.
While many fans of the long-running crime drama hoped for another season, the fifth instalment marked the end of the series.
The creators always knew they wanted to end with the fifth season as they had exhausted the characters’ storylines.
However, a spin-off is in the making for Berlin (Pedro Alonso), and it will air on Netflix in the near future.
Before the end was planned, script coordinator Javier Gómez Santander told El Mundo that they hadn’t decided how long the show could go on for.
He said: “With La Casa de Papel, we go game by game, like Simeone. Chapter by chapter, sequence by sequence, line by line. We do not ever consider how long the show can last. If we got to know the scope of the phenomenon, we wouldn’t have thought to kill Berlin.”
Realising the show was reaching its natural end, they decided to draw it to a close on their terms, rather than wait for it to be cancelled.
The final five episodes started immediately after the events of the first half, with Tokyo’s tragic death.
The Professor (Álvaro Morte) was suffering greatly from the loss and what is more, he had a runaway Alicia Sierra (Najwa Nimri) to deal with.
As the gang fought off the army from inside the bank and continued with their mission to transport the gold, the Professor had a challenge on his hands.
He once more attempted to track down Sierra after she escaped, along with her newborn baby Victoria.
It may not have come as a surprise to some viewers that the pair eventually teamed up and became friends.
Tired of outrunning each other, the Professor managed to persuade the former police officer to join forces.
They managed to escape the police who were hunting them down and eventually managed to reunite with Benjamin (Ramón Agirre) at the stormwater tank.
Perhaps the biggest twist of the series was in a flashback, which showed Berlin’s wife Tatiana (Diana Gómez), having an affair with his son, Rafael (Patrick Criado).
Berlin confronted his son about the affair and ended up smashing up a cocktail bar, which is how he first ended up in prison.
Meanwhile, Tamayo (Fernando Cayo) and his team finally clocked on to how the gang had planned to get the gold of out the bank.
They decided to follow the canal route to search various key locations along the way, with the stormwater tank being the final location.
The Professor had not expected the police to be hot on his tail, and eventually, he accepted defeat.
But the twists did not end there, as he soon realised he had been played all along, and the gold had been stolen by someone else.
A masked group were seen escaping with truckloads of gold before it was revealed that Rafael and Tatiana had disguised themselves as police.
The pair had been watching the stormwater tank all along and knew exactly when to strike.
Back at the bank, the army went undercover to infiltrate the building from various entrances.
In a jaw-dropping moment, they managed to capture all of the gang members and held them at gunpoint.
Tamayo made contact with the Professor, who said he wanted to return to the bank so he could “go down with” his team.
He instructed Sierra to go ahead and find the gold, and he left her with one final request before heading back to the bank.
In the final twist of the series, flashbacks proved how the Professor had anticipated the defeat all along.
He created a clever plan, with the gang making a video explaining how they got the gold out.
They planned to make Spain bankrupt, so they could use the gold as leverage to keep their lives.
Sending Tamayo and his team on a wild goose chase, they managed to convince them the gold had been dumped in the sea.
In fact, Sierra found where the real gold had been hidden and managed to transport it to Portugal, where the gang would split it and Rafael would get his share.
As part of a deal with Tamayo, he gave a press conference announcing the gang members had been killed, and they were taken out of the bank in body bags.
He also explained how Denver (Jaime Lorente) had acted as an advisor and had been placed in witness protection.
The reality was all of the gang members were alive, and they had roped Tamayo into pulling off one of the greatest cover-ups in history.
While Tamayo looked like a hero for preventing financial crisis with the recovery of ‘fake’ gold, the gang was able to live their lives with new identities.
Money Heist season 5 is on Netflix now.
